Re: Necchi 4825 bobbin winding problems
Or stop by the local fabric store (or even Amazon online) and pick up a standalone bobbin winder for about $25 US. You can wind all your bobbins on the little unit and not subject your machine to additional wear and tear.

In the meantime, you can pick up a standalone bobbin winder at the fabric store (or Amazon) for ~$25 US to wind your bobbins. Saves wear and tear on your machine and you also won't need to unthread your machine to wind a bobbin.
Sounds like it is actually the tension on the bobbin winder. Make sure that the thread is following the correct path to the bobbin. Other than getting it repaired, a stand-alone bobbin winder (avlb @ JoAnn's or online) for ~$30 would work. One brand is called the Sidewinder. Verify that your bobbins will work on it because some Singer bobbins will not. It's a nice accessory to have because it saves wear 'n tear on your machine plus you can wind bobbins without unthreading the machine.
FWIW, it is usually better to wind bobbins at a slower speed. Higher speed will tend to make the bobbin jump around and the thread to pop off. In addition, higher speed will tend to stretch the thread going onto the bobbin. The thread will not relax until unwound from the bobbin and stitched into your garment. It may cause the fabric to pucker as the thread relaxes. Slower is better!
I have a Designer Topaz, very similar to yours. There is a small eccentric-shaped piece that rides the thread as the bobbin is filling. On my machine, it can be turned via the little star shaped "torx" depression. This determines the point at which the drive disengages the winding process. In the alternative, when the bobbin is as full as you want it, just push the rider away from the bobbin; the same effect is achieved.
